Torgos arcam appears to be a relative of Torgos tracheliotos and Torgos negevensis commonly called lappet-faced vultures which are native to the sands of the Sahara, Sahel, and Negev deserts. Like them, it is a carrion bird that feeds on the decaying corpses of other animals, and is only aggressive when defending its meal. As such, survivors should take note when they see groups of Torgos arcam circling above. It means that a wounded creature or a bloody battle may be somewhere below.

Interestingly, Torgos arcam is capable of storing raw meat in a separate stomach where it will decay at an accelerated rate. Once spoiled, Torgos arcam will regurgitate the meat for proper consumption. The strong stomached survivor could, in theory, utilize this feature to speedily spoil meat for recipes.

Domesticated

Despite its impressive wingspan, Torgos arcam is not suitable as a pack animal, and is surprisingly light. Some survivors have even been known to keep a tame Torgos arcam perched on their shoulder.

The Torgos or Vulture is one of the creatures in the ARK: Scorched Earth expansion pack.

Trivia

  • The Vulture seems to extend the duration of raw meat and spoiled meat in its inventory. You cannot place raw meat into its inventory but if you let it harvest any dead bodies, it will store the raw meat in its inventory and make it last longer.
  • The Vulture is capable of doing melee damage while on your shoulder even while you are riding another mount.
